    Description

    This funny opposites-attract lesbian romance digs up the awkward truth about what really matters in life.

    Ambitious ice queen and corporate lawyer Felicity Simmons has spent her life focused on one thing: scuttling up the career ladder. She's achingly close to taking charge of a media empire for her boss when she's sent to investigate a South Bronx charity that helps homeless people's pets. Has the charity made off with her boss's generous donation? And, who on earth is that gorgeous soft-butch veterinarian who looks as if she could toss a Shetland pony over one shoulder? Not that Felicity has any interest in some opinionated Amazon or her adorable fleabag of a dog.

    Felicity is quite sure she will not be distracted, thank you very much. She has a minor mystery to solve, a mentor to impress, and her life's dream to fulfil. Even if a distraction might be exactly what she needs.

    The Awkward Truth takes place during the last half of Lee Winter's The Brutal Truth but can easily be listened to as a standalone story.

    So cute!

    Oh my god, Lee Winter is so good at writing people in love! It's my second book from her and now I'm a fan, her characters are so interesting and their love stories are rooted in reality yet so dreamy, I just can't! 10 out of 10 would recommend 👌

    So good!

    It was hard to wait for the audio book to discover this story but oh god it was worth the wait. Lee Winter narrated by Angela Dawe... If you know you know.

    Time well spent

    Loved the story, archetypal personalities without falling into cliché, steaming moments. A resounding yes from me.

    Excellence, as usual for Lee Winter/Angela Dawe

    This one was cute. I’m sure it was difficult writing a sequel to such an amazing book, The Brutal Truth. It definitely doesn’t reach the same altitude as TBT did for me but still excellent. If you liked TBT, you’ll like this one.

    I honestly think this was one of the best narration jobs I’ve heard from Dawe. She is so good, it’s always difficult to listen to another narrator after one of her books.



    Lee Winter is my favorite author in the game. Her stories are addicting and extremely precise. The attention to detail is what I love. Not a majority of the text dedicated to MCs thoughts. I hate when an MC in a book spends too much time on their thoughts… going on and on about what they’re thinking and not enough dialogue between characters. Lee Winter is masterful with her words that I am always super engaged.

    Funny, awkward, and sweet

    I truly enjoyed this story and the narrator. It had me laughing, cringing (appropriately), steaming, and swooning.

    Going directly to my favorite list.

    Another home run from Lee Winter. Not many write about the homeless and give them dignity, but Lee really took great care to remind us all everyone deserves respect & nothing is guaranteed. And viewing this from only the vantage point of Felicity, a highly out and proud woman of privilege, without turning it into a giant messaging piece shows why Lee is one of the all time greats of the wlw genre. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Another great Lee Winter/Angela Dawe combination!

    Lee Winter is by far my favorite lesfic romance writer, and this book was as good as her others. And of course if you add Angela Dawe to the mix it's even better. Highly recommend (though make sure to read The Brutal Truth first).

    Another brilliant Winter/Dawe collaboration!

    I was excited to learn that Felicity Simmons from The Brutal Truth was going to get her own book, though I had no idea where Lee Winter was going to go with it. Sure - we knew that Felicity was career-driven, tightly wound, socially awkward, blunt, icy and unintentionally hilarious at times, but what story did the author want to tell through her that was important enough to bring her back around?
    Without beating us over the head with it, Winter yet again brings light to an issue that most of us see every day - homelessness. And not just those who live out on the streets, but those who have furry family members to keep them company and often, safe as well. No - this book isn't about homelessness per se, it's more about Felicity's growing awareness of the world around her and herself.
    Media mogul Elena Bartell gives Felicity a job to complete before handing the reins of Bartell Corp over to her. After donating a considerable sum to a non-profit who assists those living on the streets with their pets the year prior, a news story is released that Living Ruff is in dire financial straits. Elena tasks Felicity to find out where her money went and why the organization is in trouble.
    Felicity isn't worried she won't be able to get to the bottom of it. It's what she does, after all. But she gets much more than she bargained for when she visits the organization and meets their lead veterinarian Dr. Sandy Cooper. Described as a Brienne of Tarth type (Game of Thrones reference) this impressive, tall, strong, Amazon of a woman is passionate about what she does and the people she helps. While waiting to speak to Living Ruff's director about the financials, she rides along with Cooper for the day and gets a real view of what these people's lives are like. And not all are who she expected them to be. Felicity is also drawn to Cooper in a way that baffles her because she's SO not her type. Her type is other ambitious corporate lawyers who have a certain image. As Felicity's awakening unfolds, so does the mystery of what happened with Elena's donation to the non-profit.
    It was great seeing Felicity's transformation in this story. She's been completely focused on her career and is about to reach the pinnacle of what she's always wanted at Bartell Corp, but because of this experience, she begins to realize that maybe there's more to life than corporate success.
    This book is a worthy addition to the Brutal Truth universe. It's socially conscious and a bit heartbreaking, but also interesting, fun, and sexy as hell. I mean, REALLY sexy. Go, Felicity! And there's a wonderful new character in Sandy Cooper who, along with Elena Bartell herself, forces Felicity to examine who she is and what she wants.
    Narrator Angela Dawe brings this to life brilliantly, as usual. And she continues to surprise. There's a scene where the homeless are being offered services at a big park event and there are a good number of people in attendance. One is a much older woman and Dawe absolutely nails it, convincingly sounding like a 70+ year old woman. I also loved her interpretation of Cooper. Dawe really did her justice and illustrated all her wonderful appeal.
    Kristie's story stayed with me. As Cooper says, most people are just two paychecks away from homelessness and Dawe did a terrific job illustrating Felicity's struggle to come to terms with that.
    Winter not only entertains, but always has something significant to say in her books. She says something about kindness that's spot on but folks will have to read or listen to this book to know what that is. This was certainly worth the three month wait since the book was initially released! I ALWAYS recommend the Dawe/Winter combo. You can never go wrong!

    Another Winner!

    Lee Winter is a great story teller. Her characters are smart, sassy, strong, and who, through their experiences grow and change. Her stories are compelling. The audio matchup with Angela Dawe is brilliant as Dawe does so many voices with both power and nuance. I suggest getting this book and enjoying the ride. Oh, and did I mention there are puppies and kitties in the story…gotcha! Get it!

    Spectacular story telling.

    The story weaves in and through the Brutal Truth, and yet you don't have to read one to fully enjoy the other. Lee Winters stories are never disappointing, her characters are capturing and inviting. The story keeps the pages turning. The only reason I would slow the pace is try and make it last longer. Another Lee Winter's book I'm sure to reread. Angela Dawe draws each character out by giving them a unique and believable voice.

    Longest Winning Streak …ever

    Great story made even greater by brilliant narration. So many characters, even the South Bronx was believable. So, sometimes I write down lines from a book that stay with me for one reason or another. About 9 times out of 10 they will be the LOL variety. Here’s one set:

    “Never thought I’d be the little spoon.”
    “There are spoons?”

    *chef’s kiss* to another fine audiobook from Lee and Angela.
